Huawei Mate 30 had gambiarra to install Google Play, but no more | Cell phone

The Huawei Mate 30 (and Mate 30 Pro) was born with a problem that is the lack of Google apps on the device. A solution in the form of an app appeared under the name LZ Play, but controversies also came along and now Google has removed the device from the SafetyNet list, meaning that if it was bad before, it is now worse.

There is no doubt about the capabilities of the most recent releases of the Chinese brand, either by the commitment to good photos with the Mate 30 or by the performance to spare. The problem is that he was the first major international target that was targeted by the trade war between the United States and China, leaving his country without any Google apps and not even the Play Store.

A gambling solution was born with the LZ Play app, which served as a bridge to bring the Play Store to the product, and with it all the apps you use right now. Some rumors say that Huawei created or helped create the app, since the brand’s APIs are inside it.

Google realized the problem and removed Mate 30 from the SafetyNet list, which is responsible for notifying whether a device is safe or not – it may even know if Android has been tampered with in any way. Without this endorsement, the search giant blocks the gadget’s access to its products, such as the Play Store.

The curious thing is that until last week, Mate 30 were on the service compatibility list.

In any case, LZ Play is an application that requires administrator access and its source is mysterious, this opens Mate 30 to someone you have no idea who you are or what you will do with privileged access to the system.
